Owner David Hart did what he could to increase security. The shop went cashless, shortened hours and installed cameras.

A post was made on social media to tell Baltimoreans that one of their popular coffee shops was closing.

ABC2 spoke to the Park Cafe owners who said that the robberies had an impact, but were not the reason for the closure.
